Scientists developing AI to convert dog bark into English

Scientists in the US are reportedly working on an instrument that would use artificial intelligence (AI) to learn and translate animals ‘ vocalisations and facial expressions into English.

According to animal behavior expert, Professor Con Slobodchikoff, who has spent more than 30 years studying prairie dogs and their sophisticated way of communication, this research will allow pets and their owners to speak using ‘pet translator’, along with findings from other academics.

Slobodchikoff and his team are sifting through thousands of videos of dogs to analyse their various barks and body movements. The videos will be used to teach an AI algorithm about these communication signals. This kind of technology could help humans better understand dogs and their behavior.
